Comments The hotel facilities are definitley designed for divers. Nothing fancy but there were hanging racks for your gear. Despite the hurricane 8 months prior the facility was fully functional and in great shape. The food was excellent and service was great. I am glad I brought my laptop and DVDs. There are no TVs in the rooms, just an alarm clock/radio. The instuctor was outstanding. I completed 2 specialites while I was there. The boats were in excellent condition and although the big boat I was on had about 18 divers, we entered the water in 3 groups and did not overlap with the other groups. I was able to get in an afternoon boat dive every day. Shore diving is not worth the effort. It was good on the first day to check out my equipment and bouyancy since it had been a few months and I had some new equipment for the trip, otherwise the bottom around the hotel area is barren. I plan to return next year.
